Child Development Days

Screening all young children ages Birth to 5 years before entering school helps to ensure every child is getting the support he or she needs to be ready for learning.

The Rice Lake Area School District Child Find will be held every year.  Specific information will be advertised in the community and through school district resources.

The screening will provide you and the Rice Lake Area School District with important information and identify children who may benefit from school district and/or community resources. 

At the child’s screening, trained staff will check:
--Speech and Language Skills
--Social and Emotional Development
--Early Learning Concepts

 What will you and your child go home with? 
--Knowledge of your child’s development
--Community & School District Resources
--A free goodie bag! 

Does my child need a developmental screening?
We strongly encourage all families to get their children ages 3-4 who are not in 4K screened to assess if they are meeting developmental milestones.  The screening provides you with important information on your child’s growth, development, and learning targets.

4K Enrollment:
This event is also the perfect time to get your child enrolled into 4 Year Old Kindergarten (4K) for next school year! If we have your child's information already, you will receive an enrollment packet in the mail which can be returned during Child Development Day. There will also be enrollment packets on hand to complete if you do not receive one prior to the event.

If your child is not yet eligible for 4K, be sure to complete our Census form to ensure they are on our mailing list for when the time comes!
